Cross-platform keyboard issues

In Bluefish, gtk+, Programming on October 5, 2014 by oli4444

We often receive bugreports from windows or OSX users with keyboard problems. For example on windows changing the keys ” to ¨ and ‘ to ´. Or on OSX the square brackets [] are not possible on a German keyboard layout (see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=737547), or curly braces not on AZERTY layout (see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=692721).

From what I understood this is caused by gtk handling the keyboard events itself, instead of waiting for the key-value that the operating system provides.

Is there a way how this can be fixed? Either in Bluefish or in GTK?
